Smaller businesses at a shopping centre are helping to fly the flag for independent stores.

The outlets at Eagles Meadow in Wrexham are backing the UK Independents’ Day campaign on July 4 to help local businesses to prosper and grow, and boost town economies.

They say small businesses can offer great customer service, unique finds, investment in new technology and a better chance to negotiate discounts.

Research for the Federation of Small Businesses shows that of every £1 spent, up to 70p circulates back into the local economy, flowing from traders to suppliers and the people they depend on to run their companies.

Among those backing the initiative is Ragazzi, an independent designer menswear store based in Eagles Meadow.

We’re looking for homes with very unique features which could be anything from an extravagant designs and decorations to a very average home with large collections of memorabilia etc. The dates we’d need them to be available are the 16th of June for a viewing and a valuation and the 19th of june for a maximum of 3 hours of filming – so quite soon.It’s a great opportunity to showcase the area and some wonderful homes”
